Turkey season is underway here in Tennessee and last week was a very rare “double double” for me. On two different days I got to go chase birds with two of the best guys on the planet and on both hunts we each encountered sizable gobblers. As we worked hard together to outsmart the wily longbeards I thought of the verse in Ecclesiastes 4 that says, “Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor.” (v. 9) Here’s a picture of the “return” we had at our dinner table!
Annie outdid herself with this combination of deep fried, fresh wild turkey, cole slaw and a buttered baked sweet potato. It was a perfectly scrumptious way to respect the life of the gobbler that I brought home. (You can find her recipe in our cookbook, “The Hunter’s Cook Book” on our book page.)
And here I am with my two comrades after each hunt. On the left is Lindsey Williams, on the right is Jason Cruise. How grateful I am for their friendship and the fellowship we enjoyed between the sound of goblin’! (Stay tuned for a link to a video featuring the hunt with Jason.)
